Inside the Classroom


Follow along as a kindergarten class goes through an Amplify CKLA Skills Strand lesson on tricky words. Students review sounds and spellings using Large Letter Cards, engage with Student Readers, and receive explicit instruction from their teacher in both whole- and small-group settings.

Grade 1

In this Amplify CKLA Knowledge Strand lesson, students achieve reading proficiency with complex read-alouds, exposure to background knowledge, vocabulary practice, text-based discussions, and writing activities.

Grade 4

Watch students journey through a Quest for the Core™ in the Amplify CKLA lesson, Eureka! Student Inventor. These fourth-graders work in teams, combining research, writing, and presenting skills to become master inventors.


Knowledge at the center
When you put knowledge at the center of learning, an amazing thing happens: students get motivated and curious for more. They learn to read, and they learn to love reading.


Foundational skills to accelerate fluency
Watch students receive targeted, explicit instruction on sounds, spellings, and word automaticity in lessons designed to teach phonological awareness, decoding, and more.


Making teachers’ lives easier with high-quality instructional materials

Student engagement
